Freedom's Memorial by Del Abe Jones


This day is set aside
           to honor those
                    who took the chance to die.
But they have died in vain
           if we ever forget
                    the reason why.

Freedom can be like time
           slipping away
                    before we even know.

But we all have the choice
           more, a duty
                    to battle freedoms' foe.

Let us give thanks this day
           to all those brave
                    who paid the highest cost.

Not take it for granted
           and realize
                    it easily could be lost.

Peace by Geet Asher Jackson


Peace hard to find in this world of serge,
as we search for inner peace.

Terror caused by the evil persons mind,
as fear strikes innocent peoples minds,
turning their happiness into sadness due an evil persons madness.

Peace turns into violence as we search for silence,
so this world would change for the good of mankind,
hoping for a ray to come in the day of heavy rain,
for violence to vanish in the rain and peace to come in form of the ray.

To be a Kornel Durango-Cohen Ehmann

To be a mom takes guts, fortitude and patience
It takes courage, love and strength
Some times being a mom means carrying a child behind your heart
Some times being a mom means carrying somebody in your heart

Its a spiritual birth meant for those who have learned to love
Sometimes its given to those who've found this strength

Some people think motherhood is a physical action. I don't
To be a REAL mom takes heartfelt action and sometimes inaction

Lord, help me be a better mom today. Help me be involved, loving and responsive to the needs of my child.

Today I want to thank the moms out there who have been there for me in my own process and growth.

Mother's Love By Samuel Taflove Stupp

Her love is like
an island in life's ocean,
vast and wide
A peaceful, quiet shelter
From the wind, the rain, the tide.
'Tis bound on the north by Hope,
By Patience on the West,
By tender Counsel on the South
And on the East by Rest.
Above it like a beacon light
Shine Faith, and Truth, and Prayer;
And through the changing scenes of life
I find a haven there.

Peace By Munnan Misra Stein


Peace - overcoming evil with good be,
Peace - overcoming falsehood with truth be,
Peace - overcoming hate with love clearly,
Peace - in hearts and minds of people be.

For Peace - love and sacrifice for it readily,
For Peace - strive to build it unhesitatingly,
For Peace - shun war understandingly,
For Peace - strive and work for it earnestly.

The more man sweats for the humanity,
The less he bleeds in war of societies,
Peace through peaceful means achieved be,
In nuclear age Peace the way of survival be.
